Ship Facts: Azamara Journey Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Azamara Journey Deck Plans
Journey 30JAN11 Panama Canal/Central America
When I heard that Azamara had a new CEO and that he planned significant changes to an already superior product, I yawned. Heard that one before. Having just experienced the new product, however, all I can say is WOW! Azamara has, indeed, improved on it's product in many ways.

No nickle and diming with the inclusive fares. Service of every sort better than superior. Food the best of any cruise line we have sailed with. In fact, we felt that the food and selection in the main dining room was so good that we cancelled our reservations for the specialty restaurants. Seemed to be no point in going to them. We did arrange to have a "pairings" dinner with specially matched wines and courses which proved to be an excellent evening hosted by the Cruise Director, Tony. Various officers, including the Captain, stopped by the table to see what we were eating. The house wines were very fine. So much about this cruise was memorable. In fact, I have difficulty finding new adjectives to describe Azamara so that I don't sound redundant. Well worth the price, I feel.

And providing the backdrop for all this was the Journey, the ex-Renaissance "R Six". We love the size and intimacy of the "R" ships. The perfect size.

So kudos to Mr. Pimental and to Captain Tysse. And to the Journey staff who served us so well, thank you. We especially thank Dumon, Luis and Melvin. You made the wonderful experience possible.
